How to Get Started
After you complete the Interest Form, we will contact you to schedule an appointment (telephone or Zoom). During that appointment, we will listen carefully to your story and begin to understand your needs, questions, and hopes. Typically during this time, we are able to answer basic questions that you have about resources and help you make some initial connections (e.g., a disability-friendly church in your area).
Depending on your needs and goals, we may walk with you or your family for a single appointment or for a season.
We understand that families touched by disability are often stretched financially. When you connect with us to pursue a training, counseling or discipleship relationship, we can offer a sliding-fee guide and Pay-As-You’re-Able policy. People only pay what they are able to pay. NO ONE EVER gets turned away.
Our partnership with you can begin now! Simply fill out the Interest Form below and we’ll contact with you to arrange next steps.

THE WRIM MODEL
At Walk Right In Ministries, we gratefully celebrate, promote and depend on the promises of 2 Corinthians 1:3-6 and Ephesians 3:16-21 to advance and accelerate ministry beyond our small team.
God uses the intersecting stories and Christ-seeking faith to do more than we can ever imagine. You have resonance and credibility with certain people that no one else will have in the same way. This “Walking Partner” lifestyle enhances our sense of adventure with Jesus and bolsters our hope of heaven.
Many of those who have reached out to WRIM for help have gone on to live the Walking Partner lifestyles. For example, a mom whose son struggled with mental health issues, now walks in encouraging and prayer-focused relationships with other women who have experienced disabilities or loss. A sibling who grew up in a home consumed by daily caregiving is now an adult mentoring other siblings.
